Explanation of Responses:
1. The performance shares were earned as of December 31, 2015 for the 2013-2015 performance period, as determined effective February 25, 2016.
2. Represents shares withheld by PNM Resources, Inc. to satisfy the tax withholding obligations arising in connection with the settlement of the performance share award described in (1) above. The company utilizes a modified "share withholding" approach in connection with settling awards of performance shares, in which it (i) withholds (in cash) the amount required to satisfy the tax withholding obligations and remits such amount to the relevant tax authorities, and (ii) directs a designated broker to purchase on the open market the number of shares of the company's common stock that can be acquired with the after-tax value of the performance share award at the prevailing market price. Only these "net shares" are delivered to the recipient of the performance share award.
3. Based on the closing price on the date of the grant.
4. The options vest in three equal annual installments from grant date.
5. The options expire 10 years from grant date.
6. Each restricted stock right represents a contingent right to receive one share of PNM Resources, Inc. common stock.
7. The restricted stock units vest in three equal annual installments. Vested shares will be delivered to the reporting person on the applicable vesting dates (or, if the company is in a blackout period under its insider trading policy on any vesting date, at a later date after such blackout period ends).
